in washington and time and time again how they have gone after obama care and how they have obstructed every jobs package on the table? are you willing to do that? governor, did you go down to washington and have lunch with the republicans and tell them, hey, you've got to knock off thighs filibusters, man. we've got to get something done. he knows nothing about governing. so that's hood wink number one. and then he said "i am in this business to win. i don't know why you are in it. i am in this to win." really? he's in this to win. i'm in this business to win. to win for who? the republicans? for you, governor? or for the people? because if you care about the people, you will stand up strong and say that your party is the party of obstruction and your party is the party of hate. and your party is the racist party. that's what it's going to take if you really want to govern, you have to tell the truth. you know, he's not in the business to help the middle class, i can guarantee you that. he's not in the business to help workers and teachers. no. chris christie is in this thing called politic
